Well, I am back at home from my week in Washington. I’ve been sick all week, so that’s put a damper on things, but I still had a wonderful time and I look forward to moving there with much anticipation. Pictured above is the town of Renton, where I’ll be working and most likely living.

Everyone is so nice and welcoming at the library. I’ve known them “virtually” for the past 6 months, so it was nice to finally meet the person behind the voice on the phone!

This is where I’ll be working (was there Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday for meetings)

The air is so clean up there, I felt so invigorated, and even when I hit the yoga mat, my breathing was much better, which led to a great set of asanas all around.

Upon arriving back in Orange County, I swung by Mother’s Market (an awesome vegetarian grocery store) and picked up some essentials….a few ingredients for various dals, and a few bottles of kombucha. I got home, desperate for some rest, but I had to complete a test for my evil cataloging class, so I’ve been working on that for the past several hours, but thankfully I’m finished and now its time to rest and relax!

Listening to Inside My Mind (Blue Skies) by Groove Armada, and drinking a wonderful cup of tea. Such an improvement from the cheap 7-11 swill I’ve been drinking this past week!

On Friday morning, I woke up early and decided to take a walk in the morning chill before starting on yoga, and fortunately, I remembered my camera for once!

Moving to Seattle!

Yup, I’m moving up to Seattle. I am moving up there for my job as an access & interface librarian. I’ve been wanting to move up to Seattle for several years now, so I’m quite excited about this opportunity.

I’ll be in Seattle all of next week for work, and while I’m there I’ll be finding a place to live. I hear there are a ton of awesome veg*n restaurants in the area, and I’m excited to check them all out. And the hiking looks great.

I signed up to contribute to Vegan MoFo, but I’ve been so darn busy I haven’t had a chance. I’m going to attempt to catch up this weekend, but with school work, getting ready for my trip, and various other responsibilities, I may not have time.

Supposed to attend a permaculture workshop on Sunday, but I may not even have time for that! I’m going to try to make it, because this’ll be my last chance to do so, and the people who run Ars Terra are awesome. Fortunately they are in a fairly successful band and go on tour quite often, so I’ll still be able to say hi when they are in Seattle.
